Last week, Paul brought you the 10 best horror films of the past 10 years. I’m not a huge horror buff, probably because I’m afraid of my own shadow and movies like The Ring force me to sleep with the light on. No, I prefer comedies: I’d rather wet myself from laughing instead of out of fear. To follow up Paul’s article last week, I decided to rank the best comedies from the past 10 years. After considering all the comedies in that time range, I realized that there were many that I simply didn’t want to leave off. As such, I’ve gone ahead and ranked the 20 best comedies of the past 10 years. Naturally, I don’t expect everyone to agree with my choices, and I’m pretty sure some of you will question my sense of humor and my intelligence as well. No worries, kids. This list wasn’t easy to make. After the jump, take a look at the 20 best comedies of the past 10 years, ranked in descending order.
Also, I think that since humor is so subjective, it’s pointless to write why each of the top 20 movies is so funny. Chances are if you disagree with me, you’re not going to change your mind; if you agree with me, well, all you’ll do is nod and picture me naked. I’ve included one of my favorite quotes from each of the movies instead.
Finally, there’s no Wes Anderson movies on this list. Not because they aren’t funny – they are – but because I don’t consider his films true comedies. They’re a bit more than that. OK, enough babbling. On with the rankings…
20) Wedding Crashers
Mom! The meatloaf! F*ck!!!!
19) Road Trip
It’s not cheating if you spread peanut butter on your balls and let your dog lick it off.
18) Forgetting Sarah Marshall
You sound like you’re from London!
17) Best in Show
Man, I tell you something, if you live in my neighborhood and you’re dressed like that, you’d better be a hotel doorman.
16) Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
The Jews have shifted their shapes!
15) American Pie
We’ll just tell your mother we ate it all.
Dammit. Who typed a question mark on the Teleprompter?
13) Office Space
Oh, oh, and I almost forgot. Ahh, I’m also gonna need you to go ahead and come in on Sunday, too…
12) Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Yeah, I wasn’t a big fan either… but Affleck was the bomb in “Phantoms”.
11) Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
I made some love stains in the back. You’ll see..
10) The Hangover
It’s Phil, leave a message. But don’t text me. It’s gay.
9) Hot Rod
Now I don’t want to say that kiss was hot, but if the boner police are here, I need a lawyer!
8) The Ten
Are you gonna show me your hard, wooden dick?
They’re breakdance fighting!
6) Tropic Thunder
Well to the man’s credit, he has eased up on the retard throttle.
This guy is either gonna think ‘Here’s another kid with a fake ID’ or ‘Here’s McLovin, a 25 year-old Hawaiian organ donor’. Okay? So what’s it gonna be?
4) Bad(der) Santa
I’ve been to prison once, I’ve been married – twice. I was once drafted by Lyndon Johnson and had to live in shit-ass Mexico for 21/2 years for no reason. I’ve had my eye socket punched in, a kidney taken out and I got a bone-chip in my ankle that’s never gonna heal. I’ve seen some pretty shitty situations in my life, but nothing has ever sucked more ass than this.
3) Meet the Parents
I have nipples, Greg. Could you milk me?
2) Old School
Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we’re going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don’t know, I don’t know if we’ll have enough time.
1) Super Troopers
Farva’s number one!!!! Farva’s number one!!!!
Just missed: The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Van Wilder, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, Pineapple Express, Stepbrothers
How would you have ranked these? Any you felt deserved to be in the Top 20 that weren’t? Let me know in the comments section. To really get your point across, make sure to call me names and insult my intelligence. It gets me off.
